Stewart's curiosity turned to concern as shediscovered that the unstated purpose of the club, which is sponsored by the ChildEvangelism Fellowship, is to convey the impression to its young members and theirschoolmates that their school favors a particular form of the Christian religion. Shesoon learned that the Good News Club—a seemingly spontaneous and voluntary afterschoolprogram—was in fact part of a larger, calculated initiative by national advocacygroups whose declared aim is to "take back" America's public schools and repurposethem with a Fundamentalist Christian agenda.Learn more about the religion-driven programs that are inserting themselves into publicschool systems with unprecedented force and unexpected consequences.Book-signing and reception will follow Ms. Stewart's presentation and Q&A.
